Petitions: Compulsory CPR and Public Access Defibrillator education (10 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: Following on from the hon. Member for Bolton West (Julie Hilling), I rise to present this petition on behalf of my constituents and the 83,500 people across the country who want every child to be taught life-saving skills. Our out-of-hospital survival rate for cardiac arrest is 10%. In parts of Norway, it is up to 25%. If we as a country could achieve that by having every child learning how...

Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Backbench Business — School Funding Formula (10 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: I will, of course, be brief. School funding has been an issue in my constituency and my county for about 30 years, when we have been grossly underfunded and nobody did anything about it. We are currently the worst funded in the entire country—£600 per pupil per year below the English average. That hits on the schools. Teachers do a great job and pupils work hard, but it puts a huge...

Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Backbench Business — School Funding Formula (10 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: Indeed. We need the national fair funding formula, free school meals and the pupil premium. That package is the right one.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Rendition (9 Mar 2015)

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (4 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: I am sorry that the hon. Gentleman has not received my response. I definitely sent one; in fact, I was surprised that he had not replied to me. Nevertheless, he is absolutely right: the BRMA, as introduced by the last Government, has been a calamity for places such as Cambridge, and I hope that that issue can be resolved.

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (4 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I congratulate the hon. Member for Nottingham South (Lilian Greenwood) on securing this important debate, because there is a huge affordable housing problem. Whether in the social rented sector or the private rented sector, people are struggling. She and the hon. Member for Islington South and Finsbury (Emily Thornberry) are right...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (4 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: I am sure that the hon. Lady has heard the discussions. Garden cities would be a large part of that plan, because they are a sustainable way to go ahead. It is no secret that we have wanted to see much more of this, but coalition government is not the same as a single-party, Liberal Democrat Government—I look forward to seeing that at some point. The other thing we would like to do that...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (4 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: I will not, I am afraid, because other people wish to speak. On 28 November, new guidance on housing developments and section 106 payments was issued for sites with small developments of fewer than 10 units. We need those section 106 payments. In Cambridge, a 10-unit site is substantial and incredibly valuable. That measure is already costing the city more than £200,000 and the figure...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Social Security Benefits: Disability (4 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, if he will review the procedures for notifying his Department of a change of circumstances in the event of hospitalisation when the claimant is incapacitated and unable to contact the Disability Benefits helpline.

Royal Assent: Yarl’s Wood (3 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: Yarl’s Wood has been a disgrace for well over a decade. It was a disgrace under the last Government and it is a disgrace under this Government. When children were detained there, they were left at serious risk of harm. We now have adults being left at serious risk of harm. That is completely unacceptable. Yes, the individual employees were at fault; yes, the company is at fault, but...

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Appeals (3 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 5 January 2015 to Question 218892, what average length of time it takes for her Department to grant a visa after a decision is taken not to appeal a decision of the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Counter-Terrorism: Conflict Zones (2 Mar 2015)

Julian Huppert: We are of course all concerned about radicalisation in the UK and people going to join ISIS, but I urge the Home Secretary not to give way to the authoritarian views of the Labour party as it was wrong on identity cards, wrong on 90-day detention without charge and wrong now. Will she update the House on what progress she has made on implementing the Anderson recommendations, which are a far...

Isil: New Clause 23 — Throwing articles into prisons (23 Feb 2015)

Julian Huppert: It is a pleasure to speak in the debate. I shall confine my comments to the proposal for journalists to be protected under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, because I think that is very important. I know that we have to proceed fairly quickly, but it is worth my setting out the facts. There was a great deal of public concern when it became clear that Met police had been using...

Isil: New Clause 23 — Throwing articles into prisons (23 Feb 2015)

Julian Huppert: I thank the Minister, and I will hold her to at least seeking parliamentary approval in time. I accept that she cannot guarantee that both Houses will vote for the code, but I should be very alarmed if Parliament were not keen to ensure that journalists were included. The Minister also spoke about the requirement for production orders to be used in the meantime. That is welcome, because the...

Isil: New Clause 23 — Throwing articles into prisons (23 Feb 2015)

Julian Huppert: Will the Minister give way?
